We started our day without much drama for the first thirty minutes or so. We grabbed some fresh pastries from the bäckerei (bakery) next to our B&B and set off from Bregenz, Austria towards Lindau, Germany along the edge of Lake Constance with a destination of Meersburg. From Meersburg we took a fahre (ferry) to Konstance.
We had just made it to the cobblestone city center of Lindau when things started to get interesting.
It was here that a pack of wild dogs came after me and Mark had to fight them off.
Just kidding. A cuckoo bird attacked Mark out of nowhere.
No, no. That wasn’t it. A baby goat he tried to do some yoga with kicked him in the face.
HAHA just kidding. The bumpy ride over the cobblestone jostled a water bottle that was too big for his cup holder out on to the ground. A nice young man picked it up to hand it to him and by some miraculous abnormality my dear Dad lost his balance while reaching for the bottle, couldn’t get his shoe out of it’s binding and fell face first into the cobblestone pavement. -_-
My heart dropped when I turned around to see him on the ground… Coincidentally this happened literally outside of a hospital. He is a trooper though and after a ten minute rest insisted he was okay to get back on the bike. He passed the “how many fingers am I holding up” test and didn’t have any obvious signs of concussion. The black eye didn’t appear for a few hours until we were eating lunch in Meersburg.
Tomorrow we will see some waterfalls and some other scenic stuff. I’m very excited!
